and here is the final result of the dragon i was making in the video's videos of zbrushing are here
enjoy, next video will be of fully painting a dragon, or..something..
had a funny problem with audio, my laptop cant recognize a microphone, but it has a built in one... on the bottom of the screen... that i draw on... so instead of hearing educational usefull information
you hear...scritch scratchy scratch scritty scrit... buut apparently i can actually make an audio commentary on top so... seems like those video tuts might live after all
even though the treaty that resulted with the blessing of corredan flame stopped the hunt of dragons for the purposes of harvesting their scales tellas and dragontears, there are those that are foolish enough to consider themselves slayers for hire.
nowadays tellas is harvested from naturally shed scales and it comes in different qualities depending on the number of times dragon had forged.
red tellas for instance signifies a seven times forged dragon. tricky part is that tellas' natural color doesn't always show, so it is often hard to distinguish a dragon's power.
some species use this as an intimidation element. rank two dragons with red scales usually live to see their future forgings.
so one might say there are no true rules for recognizing a dragon's rank...well...except for one.
one rule that stands above all.... if the scales are black, stay back.
see, younger dragons can emulate any scale color but black. that one is exclusive ownership of elder dragons- so in general, if the dragon is covered with black scales, you might want to consider whether you are exceedingly brave or merely suicidal
once, ages ago , a mysterious magical artefact known as zbrush was created by digital mages and....
well , tis my favorite program next to photoshop, most organic program for digital modelling with a fast learning curve, and patches my drawing style... it was a match made in heaven...aaaaaaahhhh my preciousss
and it will save my ass soo much because the final battle in ravine ..well...i kinda go too far XD, so zbrush will help speed me up while maintaining the desired qualits...
lol at this point my digital painting is like actors, and zbrush is like addition of cinematic special effects. highly recomment the program to everyone who wants to try digital modelling
you literally feel like you have digital clay that you are having fun with and has great options to color and render your models.. and even its price is very reasonable given the options it presents , and the fact that it is among the most used tools in movie and videogame inrdustry
sorry bout the lack fo updates recently, massively busy week between very exciting news coming very soon, and a bunch of work stuff i had to clear and some good ole food poisoning... never eating burgers there anymore....
aaanyhoo needed me a desktop for my new monitor so i thought mergarand baran and barahea might fit ... and ... well they did
just a design sheet of first two forges of main characters dragon hurricos, first, green version is an unforged young phase , in this phase dragons can neither breathe fire nor wingwalk
red version is his first forge during first forge he gains the abilities of firebreath and wingwalk, and also his scales are classified as low grade tellas, with each subsequesnt forging scales grow larger and stronger, 7th forge is classified as godly and is a quality of very old dragons
7 forge tellas and above is priceless even a single scale of such quality will earn you a year of easy living on ravine continent
barahea the allmother, mother of fire, often revered as a deity by some of the tribes in the north. she is aften refered to as allmother given that she was the oldest of ter kind, her mate mergarand was younger but still at the same forge level. their size ways 5 times larger of their eldest son, baran who in comparison dwarfed the greatest dragons of this age.
it is said that only fallen beast azhi daia measured in size and power, some would claim daia outmatched them severely, but putting too much faith in fragmented writings and distorted whispers of the past is a fools errand and more suited to childrens tales. by official writings barahea is known as the most powerful dragon that ever lived, giver of gift of trueform, and the first dragon that communicated to people
